Tasting Menus

In a typical Moroccan home, the dining table is round and designed so that an expanding number of people can join the daily feast. For a feast it is, no matter how modest the family.
A main dish will be served in the centre of the table, with a number of smaller dishes to accompany it.
Bread will be broken and dipped into the sauce and the slow cooked meat and/or vegetables or pulses will be crushed into the bread and scooped up.
On important occasions the main courses will be many, as delicacy after delicacy will be served in the centre of the table.
And however much you have eaten, there is always room for a bit more as all your senses are stimulated with the colours, perfumes and textures of this elaborate cuisine.
At Eden, our tasting menu allows you to experience the diversity of Moroccan cuisine as a number of dishes, that vary with the seasons and the profusion of  produce in the markets, are presented to you  in traditional Moroccan style.
Pre booking essential and for a minimum of two: 85€ per pax.
